This is cut out #2 at the same resort.
One missed piece of trim board gave them a small crack to get inside of the floor trusses. Would have been easy from the outside but about 30 foot up and not really any way to get there. The maintenance guys were ordered to spray foam in the entrance, they tried to leave part of it open though.
This one was almost out of reach for me, it was all I could do to get the last combs cut and removed out of the trusses. Not whole lot of honey either.
Several sticks from nails and gang nails in the trusses, beat them down and cover with tape.

Had to open up the ceiling under the balcony above since they had access to this area also.
Got to get all the bees and close all the holes.

This is where we decided to make the attack. Small outside closet, and I mean small!

Two layers of sheetrock out of the way, and nothing got cut in half!!
The big pipe is a manual stand pipe and the orange pipe is the automatic fire sprinkler system.
Pulled the insulation back and found that mice had been here, and a huge old bumble bee nest.

Looked like a late spring swarm, maybe 3rd cycle of brood, not much honey at all.
The last cut out at Wyndham there was close 10 gallons of honey. One of the messiest jobs I had ever done because it was hard to reach also.
